Four theorists are the contributing authors of the active research theory. These authors evolved the role audience play and their ability to actively engage with communication medians. The idea of deconstructionism was the focus of the work of Jacques Derrida and Michel Foucault during the 1960’s. Later in the twentieth century theorist Raymond Bauer developed The Obstinate Audience. In the early 1980’s a theorist by the name of Stuart Hall challenged the traditional theories of an audience role in the media and developed his encoding/decoding theory. Each contributed to the current understanding of the active role audiences engage in when information is presented.
What makes an ad succeed or flop? Think about specific print or television advertisements that have either stuck with you or made you turn your eyes, and explain what works or what doesn’t. In your response, be sure to consider the impact the rhetorical
I will compare the information available from two major online medical resources to see what type of audience they are targeting and how the information is communicated. The topic that I will be chosen is diabetes. The websites that I will be getting my sources are from Medicinenet (http://www.medicinenet.com/diabetes_mellitus/article.htm) and the CDC centers for disease control and prevention (http://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/home/index.html).
Over the course of my observations of McComas Gym’s weight room, it was easy to figure out what type of audience would be interested in my essay. Based off this audience, I developed a persona who represents the weight room community by combining many of the characteristics I observed in individuals in the weight room. My developed persona is an ideal representative of an “insider” to the weight room community, as well as a representative of my essay’s audience.

The same can be said for all intents and purposes all standard shows on TV. It is a steady torrent of excellent individuals that viewers are being presented to. Furthermore, shockingly, it is getting to be acknowledged that society ought to look like TV. There is basically nobody in this medium saying that it is alright to act naturally, to look what you look like and like yourself in the meantime. What are the impacts of this? Significant depressive issue, schizophrenia, social fear, body dysmorphic issue, bulimia nervosa, and anorexia nervosa to give some examples. The effect that today's self-perception standard is having on ladies is boundless. Dietary problems and low self-regard are at an unequaled high. The issue isn't improving either, truth be told it is deteriorating. Young ladies are presently being come to by these messages prior in life. The more youthful they are, the more susceptive to the picture they are. Ladies are basically growing up from conception with this doubtful picture of what they ought to look like installed into their
Audience engagement with stories allows them to reflect the stories to the level of realism in their lives. Stories that are engaging and interactive with the audience are considered authentic and true to life. Engaging with stories that we read, or watch leaves its marks on the audience, allowing them to memorise the story and have a sense that the story was real, as they took part in it (Busselle & Bilandzic 2008). Even if a film, TV show or book have limited interactivity, it still allows the user to immerse themselves deeper into the story, rather than just sitting still and only watching a film or reading a book. Interactivity is taking one step further to entertain audience that little bit more.
The example we discussed in class consisted of describing the most negative or positive impact a medium has had on my life. In my experience, mediums have had positive impacts on my life because without them I would not know half of the knowledge that I have acquired up to this day. Most mediums actually ended up helping people overall since the primary power of a medium is to spread news. There are multiple forms of mediums such as television, radio, internet, and others. Since mediums have several different types I cannot explain about how one has had a positive impact on my life, therefore, I will explain about how three mediums have had a positive impact on my life.
How advertisements affect people in many different ways. They make drugs and hand medication seems okay to children and adults to take but doesn't explain how addictive they are to take. Having the medicines help with something but cause more problems somewhere else.
These are incredibly useful, whether you're about to spend an entire summer at camp or you're just at a motivational seminar and you're getting to know the fellow audience members around you. These activities are
I would trigger conversations by talking to people about subliminal advertisements and the expansion of hidden messages within the entertainment industry. I would focus on how in culture, subliminal market immense in 1957, through movies, music, and commercials. The significance of subliminal advertisements, affects the unconscious mind of people, without people even noticing that messages change their course of actions. Subsequently, some of people’s favorite movies can manipulate and motivate them into conveying coercion actions. Subliminal topic is currently in society to modify political, religion, and social platforms of people's’ state of mind, or to promote a product. In a 1957 movie, the movie advertised the word “hungry, eat popcorn,” and “drink Coca-Cola” to influence people to drink Coca-Cola and eat popcorn frequently. As a result, the rise of consumption and the company's profit increased, simply just by promoting the two products within the movie. I am confounded on how I never realized that subliminal advertising was implemented into our entertainment market. I am positive, people will be astonished based on these intriguing facts. All along, society was oblivious and brainwashed via to the marketing field. Overall, it can probably lead people into boycotting several brands, or artists from purchasing their products or music albums.
Audiences are not mass they are made up of individuals with different cultural beliefs, age, gender and experiences with different ideas and thoughts. Audiences are active rather than passive and would interact differently as Stuart Hall stated. The producers of the media text will encode messages to the audience, which the audience will decode. The media texts are polysemic, which contain a range of meanings for the consumers to interpret.
Television commercials or print ads are often developed that rely on unusual creative tactics and have very little relevance to the product or service being advertised. Creative personnel in agencies defend the use of these ads by noting that they are novel and provide a way to break through the high level of clutter on television and in magazines. Evaluate the pros and cons of this argument. Find an example of a television commercial or print ad that takes an unusual creative approach and discuss whether you feel it is effective or ineffective.
This theory would then hold that media choice lies with the users in order to lead to desired outcomes or goals. This notion can be literally defined as ‘audience-centered,’ and prompts a shift from “what media do to people” to “what people do with media”. In so doing, users often evaluate their available media options and should be likely to choose a medium that best fulfilling their needs. It is likely that the degree of the users’ gratification obtained from the media exposure will contribute to the continuance of media use. Taken together, these two theories give a clear justification that individuals are always fully aware of what they are doing and proactive enough to ensure their needs met and away from those that thwart need fulfillment. The decision of merging theories provides
